Women In Combat

I remember when this came up with firefighters. The TV show 20/20 did a report on it. Women wanted in. So they let them in. None could drag a hose, none could carry a ladder, none could carry a person. Did they get booted? No. Bowing to political pressure, they lowered the standards! (Some places did at least.) That is never a good thing. And now when you’re passed out in a burning building, some woman who can’t even lift you (who has been taught instead to drag you out) holds your life in her hands because someone didn’t want to piss off the feminists or “deny her rights”. Life rule #1: never lower standards.
